obama's demeanor was just joe biden, it worked once it will work twice! Democrats.... Idiots. People are seeing unfiltered by the media how empty the chair (and the party) really are.

Funny how Dems thought Biden's obnoxious behavior helped him but Romney's refusal to leave topic un-rebutted was damaging.

Are you kidding me? A good polite president? I want a president who knows his facts and who will stand up for our country! That is how I seen Romney last night. Obama continues to look for folks to backup his lies example Candy, he did the same thing on the first debate like a little boy who wants

Isn't it amazing how people can look at the same debate and have different takes on it. Obama has been bashing Romney for months, so when Romney calls the president out on his way of not answering a question you think Romney was rude? All I can say is: we will see in 3 weeks!!!

Obama was channeling Biden. Very undignified for the office which Obama continues to disgrace.

Were you watching the same debate as the rest of us? Even the Moderator mentioned that when Romney wanted to speak again, "It's not as structured as you think it is." Lol, dude, Romney interrupted maybe once, but Obama interrupted a lot as well. This debate wasn't the same as the VP debate jsyk.

I don't think Romney interrupted once when it was Obama's turn to speak. He certainly didn't shout out "that's not true" during his opponent's turn like Obama did.

How the heck is this helping him if half the time it was obama's turn to speak Romney just comes out interrupting him? How does that show that he will be a good polite president?

Copying Obama my ass. Compare Obama's gestures and expressions to Romney's in the last debate, and to Clinton's in the '90s. He's a bit of a copycat. Not saying its bad to learn successful habits, but it doesn't look good to adopt the facial expression of your opponent. Better that he adopt yours.

I liked that he was strong, assertive and aggressive. It shows that he has the potential to be a strong leader. But he did get a little pushy here and there.

I hadn't noticed anything odd. Perhaps it's because I listened to the debate while doing HW, so I didn't catch visuals.

What did he do?

Romney reminds me of that guy in high school who thinks everyone likes him and wants to be him but in reality he's nothing special. I understand there's ALOT more that a president should be than this, but I would want to hang out and talk to Obama. I think Romney is to stuck up for that.

He seemed stronger in the first debate. Maybe it was because Obama was more aggressive. Romney was whining towards the end. I will say he got 4 less minutes and the moderator seemed left of center.

Willard is going down in flames! Omg so rude. Candy has to tell him repeatedly to sit down & basically shut up. Steam rolls over anything & everybody. ESP. When he's called out on his lies. Like the one just now when the crowd just did its only applause. Bad bad. Can't wait to see the polls!! W0W

I'm not jealous of someone who has done well, like Romney has. I just don't want to bear the tax burden unfairly as a member if the middle class. Obama is looking out for the middle class, not Mr. "Corporations Are People, My Friend."

Candy Crowley has been one of my favorite CNN reporters/anchors for a long time. She's doing a good job at moderating tonight. Much better than the last two moderators I've seen.

Romney, like Ryan, is calm and competent. Unlike Ryan, though, Romney is standing up for himself.
